I have a SportyakII, but mine doesn't have the sailkit. My dad bought the orange boat at a rummage years ago, and after he passed away, I ended up with it. I'd like to try to make a sailkit, just to see what this "sailing" thing is all about.
The boat saved my dog's life (yellow lab) about 6 years ago, when he ran out onto thin ice on my pond and broke though. I was able to push the boat onto the ice, and use it like an icebreaker, and get to him. That could have been really bad, if I didn't have the boat handy. As it was, I had to drag it about 50 yards to the pond.
I use a kayak paddle to get around the pond, and my 3 year old granddaughter loves to ride in the boat...hard to get her out of it.
Thanks for posting the pictures above, gives me something to work from...
